What’s Stopping you from Success?

Aha Moment Monday

Who’s in the picture?  You know …. the one where you’re smiling from ear to ear.

You’re absolutely beaming in that moment the flash went off; grateful beyond words for the experience and for the people who helped you get there.

You know which picture I’m talking about, right?

The one where you hit that milestone. It was a crazy amount of effort – mile-high hurdles, grinding persistence, tenacity beyond belief – but you did it.

And now you’re smiling.

Can you believe that some people never experience that exhilarated feeling?  The one that starts with daring to test themselves against their vision and ends with that feeling of invincible power?

The fact is, “It’s the start that stops most people.” ~ Anonymous

I’m wondering, then, is it the fear of failure or the fear of success that is the root cause in hesitating to test ourselves?

The fear of not being good enough? Or the fear of being good beyond our wildest dreams?

Aha – Testing leads to failure, and failure leads to understanding. ~ Burt Rutan

I bet if I asked you if you would do it again the answer would be, “yes”…because now you know what to expect, right?

Now that you’ve got your success map – you’ve done it once – you’ve learned the ropes.

Not only the ropes on what to expect of the situation but the ropes on what to expect from yourself; the “understanding” of how you addressed the learning, how you handled the adversity, how you rose to new heights to excel and achieve your goal.

Doing it again – and again, and again, and again – is so much easier now that you know you can.

You’ve got a great story to tell. Share it with someone daring to take their first step.

Succeed deliberately!
